Don't Increase VA In State Tuition with H.B. 1696 sign now

Delegate Dave Albo (VA 42) has drafted an amendment to his bill before the Virginia House of Delegates (HB 1696) that would increase college tuition for in-state students earning more than 120 credit hours before graduation.

This bill would negatively affect students who transfer between schools, switch majors, and those who have credits earned before entering college, as well as those who are taking heavy course loads and expanding their educational horizons.

The bill would make the students in question have to pay out of state tuition once they reached 120 credit hours, provided their major does not call for more. Additionally, it would force in state schools to take 80\% of their student body from within the state, which would drastically impact the schools' budgets (already facing cuts). The bill would shortchange talented students who are learning above and beyond what their major requires and students taking time to find out what major suits them best.

Ultimately, this would affect most of the in-state student body as well as in state colleges and universities for the worse. We ask that those voting on this bill will consider this petition first.

    As a student who struggled early on in college and had to take over 120 credits to graduate with a respectable GPA, this bill would have made it financially impossible for me to finish my degree.

    As a student who graduated with only one major, but four minors to cover my spectrum of interest, I am saddened that the Virginia Legilature feels that well rounded and educated students are those who should be deterred from their education.
